Michael Meyer (Biology, Russian Studies, International Studies '14)
received a Fulbright Study/Research Grant to study the molecular
ecology of Lake Baikal with Maksim Timoveev, Ph.D., a leader in
molecular ecology at Irkutsk State University in southeast Siberia,
Russia. Meyer's research focus is the effect of temperature on
catabolic proteins in endemic Baikal amphipods. Meyer also plans
to intern with the Tahoe-Baikal Institute, an international environmental
education institute, coordinating local events and workshops to promote
environmental education and awareness. Before he begins his Fulbright
experience, Michael will have the opportunity to study Russian for two
months in Kazan, Russia, at the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities
with funding support through the Critical Language Scholarship Program.
After completing his Fulbright experience, Meyer plans to pursue a Ph.D.
in aquatic or theoretical ecology.
